's dynastic dads like george h.w. bush or prescott bush or joe kennedy or the fathers that color the inspirational family stories so common on the campaign trail. ted cruz's dad, pastor rafael cruz is of the latter variety, staple of the tea party favorite stump speech and is the texas senator's personal symbol of the american dream. what do you do as a politician when your dad says something like this. >> we need to send barack obama back to chicago. i'd like to send him back to kenya. >> back to kenya? what? a spokesman for senator cruz told mother jones magazine, the left-leaning magazine that broke the story, quote, these selective quotes taken out of context mischaracterize the substance of pastor cruz's message. pastor cruz does not speak for the senator. joining me now to talk about it, "new york times" op-ed columnist ross douthat, tracy seffel and writer for the atlantic, molly ball. ross, first of all, i think it's fair to say we all have dads and we all have moms and maybe they don't always represent what we actually think. but pastor cruz is a big part of senator cruz
eisenhower. that was a knock on him and calvin coolidge and george h.w. bush. when they were accused of micromanaging like jimmy carter or being out of the loop, bystanders to their own presidency. back in the panel we're joined now by david gergen who has worked with presidents both republican and democrat since the nixon administration. what do you make of this? is he a bystander president? >> i think he has a management style that does not lend itself to vigorous governing. he's a first class individual. he's a moral man. i worked for nixon. we don't always have that. give him a lot of credit for that. i give him credit for passing a health care bill. seven presidents try and failed. he got it passed. it's become a triumph and a tragedy with what's happening with it. where i think, anderson, he is much much better at campaigning. he ran a superb two campaigns. very well run. very well administered. the awe of the country in both cases. yet he doesn't run the government well. >> what is that? is it just a completely different exercise? >> very different exercise with very different

of like katrina was for george w. bush. i'm not comparing them, obviously, people died in that storm, but i don't think that president bush was ever viewed quite the same way after he did the whole heck of a job brownie thing in the fifth year of his presidency. and there's a dangerous here for this president who's now down in the polls that his image could be indelibly changed by this much more critical media coverage of these problems. martha: yeah, you know, it's very interesting to watch democrats, howard, talking about this issue. and in some ways, you know, you see some democrats pulling away from this president. they're trying to secure their own re-election prospects in their own communities and come up with plan that might pacify people a little bit, and you look down the road and wonder are his supporters starting to kind of pull away? are they starting to turn the wagons away from him in a way that will stick? and i wonder, you know, how long it takes to kind of figure that out. is it the next election cycle? is that very significant in terms of how much this sticks to him
calling bush a liar, george w. bush and he just kept saying, keep repeating that, keep repeating that until everybody just keeps calling him a liar. i'd like to ask david corn when he's going to start calling this president a liar because so many things, you know, benghazi, the n.s.a., the i.r.s., and now this whole health care bill is such a farce. it is a joke. guest: can you tell me what the president lied about when it comes to benghazi? caller: the first thing, we don't know what he was doing. guest: no, we're talking about lying. you said the president was lying about benghazi. can you give an example? caller: everybody covers for him. he doesn't have to answer for anything. all he ever does, he's out campaigning all the time and he's supposed to be a president. i'd like to ask you, why is he a president? he doesn't lead. he doesn't do anything. all he does is go out there and agitate people. he's a community agitator. he has divided this country and we don't want anything part of your leftist progressive views. host: let's give him a chance to respond. guest: well, i don't
